Passover in the Jewish calendar is on the 14 of Nisan, therefore, makes it 5th or 6th in the month of Sivan for Shavuot or Feast of Weeks. Passover may be nearly any day of the week which makes Shavuot or Pentecost to be on the same day of the week. Therefore Pentecost would and did fall on nearly any day of the week including weekdays.

Pentecost- The Coming of the Holy Spirit
2:1 When the day of Pentecost was being celebrated,a all of them were together in one place. 2 Suddenly, sound like the roar of a mighty windstorm came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. 3 They saw tongues like flames of fire that separated, and one rested on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in foreign languages as the Spirit gave them that ability.
5 Now devout Jews from every nation on earth were living in Jerusalem. 6 When that sound came, a crowd quickly gathered, startled because each one heard the disciples speaking in his own language. 7 Stunned and amazed, they asked, “All of these people who are speaking are Galileans, aren’t they? 8 So how is it that each one of us hears them speaking in his own native language: 9 Parthians, Medes, Elamites, residents of Mesopotamia, Judea, Cappadocia, Pontus, Asia, 10 Phrygia, Pamphylia, Egypt, the district of Libya near Cyrene, Jewish and proselyte visitors from Rome, 11 Cretans, and Arabs, listening to them talk in our own languages about the great deeds of God?”
12 All of them continued to be stunned and puzzled, and they kept asking one another, “What can this mean?”
13 But others kept saying in derision, “They’re drunk on sweet wine!”
